Sounds like it’s not available for overseas shipping....as the frameset seems a better option.

Re:

Just about to order one. Trying to find out who’s making them. Yes the frame is better value as a lot of the complete bike I wouldn’t want. I’ve got a pdf on an email when I’m home later I’ll try to sort out an upload onto here.

Looks like they've bought up some old 10-speed Veloce mechs, cassettes and brakes which were last seen in the 2017 catalogue.
Brake levers look like a combination of Dia-Compe DC204QC and GC202 but I'm intrigued to know what gear levers they've used. They look like Dia-Compe which would make them friction only so a real throw back to 1980 there.
Chainset - Andel? Looks like 52/42 whatever it is.
As for hubs headset and seatpost - no idea.

I think it looks like quite a good effort at a throwback machine visually with the usefulness of a wider range cassette although how many will actually get ridden?
Would be good to know who's building the frames, presumably a reasonably large outfit unless it's a really limited run. Do Bob Jackson still have 753 certified builders?

Mark.

Apparently only 200 being built. Gear levers are Dia Compe.
